After a standard test of the water at our local beaches, the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit has advised the Municipality of Port Hope to close the West Beach for swimming, due to an increase in E. coli bacteria levels. The Beach remains open for walking, hiking, etc.

For details about the water levels and regular testing of our beaches, please contact or 1-866-888-4577 ext. 5006.
